I was wondering if gradually changing Bandits food is the cause of his zits, he had a bunch of them. I thought that this was the reason. But Brian said that he is going into his "teenager, puberty(sp) years"

Could someone please give me the right answer?

Do you use plastic bowls? I have heard that they can cause dogs to have "zits".
Keisha is having a break out of pimples too and I am wondering if it may be food related (they are on her chest and feet). I really don't know for sure though - hopefully someone else will respond that is more knowledgeable.

You are right about the plastic bowls. They hold bacteria like staff (sp). I think ceramic bowls will do the same thing. You should use only stainless steel bowls for both food and water.
